Student Testimonials

Don’t take our word for it – here’s what our clients say:

Very nice dance studio! Slava and Atile are beautiful dancers, wonderful people and great instructors. I was very impressed to see how much my husband learned in only 3 social dance classes. He is now able to lead nice swing and bachata combinations and I am excited for him to learn more so we can finally dance together at the social dance parties.

Irena Kalenik

If you are dreaming of dancing, I would highly recommend to get classes with Slava! Every class with him is such a great and unique experience that clears my mind, gives me a natural energy boost and freedom! Slava inspires, challenges, helps and motivates me to achieve things I never thought possible. He is an amazing dancer who honors teaching. He is always sensitive to the needs regardless of ability or talent. 

Elena Vagner

I thought that for me to learn to dance, I would need a miracle… I am delighted to have Slava as my dance teacher. His ability to put me at ease is as masterful as his teaching skills, especially that I don’t have prior knowledge. Slava’s sense of humor is an added plus, who have no experience of dancing, so the lessons are not only informative, but so enjoyable at the same time. If you want to learn to dance or improve the knowledge you have – this is the right hands!

6 Easy Tips To Help You Dance Like Bailey Sok

Bailey Sok is one of those dancers who has been grabbing attention since the second she first stepped out on stage.

And from her humble beginnings on teams like Buns & Roses to her recent contract with Nike, she’s been inspiring young dancers all over the world.

But if you’re one of those dancers who's inspired by how dope Bailey Sok looks when she’s hitting every beat, you might not know how to become like her.

Especially if you’ve never danced before.

That’s where we come in!

From studying the details of Bailey Sok's dance style to taking Bailey Sok's dance classes – we've got 6 tips to help you dance just like this rising star.

Read on to get started!

1. Learn From Bailey Sok’s Dance Background

Bailey Sok’s dance journey didn’t begin with her training in elite LA choreography classes.

Like many young dancers, she started dancing at a local studio where they taught traditional styles like Ballet.

And it’s her wide range of experience that’s made her an amazing dancer today!

So, if you wanna dance like Bailey, focus on adding to your range with the following types of classes:


Bailey first started dancing under Molly Long, the director of a junior dance team that did primarily Jazz and Jazz Funk.

So, if you wanna look like Bailey, Jazz is the perfect place to start!

Jazz classes help you embrace the more theatrical parts of dancing.

You’ll work on powerful facial expressions, quick footwork, and fast turns.

All of these skills will come in handy when you want to give off that incredible stage presence that Bailey has given all 👏 her 👏 life 👏

Check out STEEZY’s Beginner Jazz program here if you’re ready to start tapping into your inner star quality.


There’s a reason why just about every dope dancer will tell you to take some beginner Ballet classes.

Ballet is all about discipline and technique. It’s about perfecting small details. It’s about focus and care.

When you watch Bailey Sok dance, you probably notice that she seems to hit every tiny sound, has amazing body control, and is consistently in the pocket.

Training in Ballet probably had a huge impact on Bailey developing those abilities!

Wanna learn how to control every muscle in your body with perfect precision just like Bailey?

Check out STEEZY’s Beginner Ballet program too!

Hip Hop

Many people describe Bailey Sok as a Hip Hop dancer.

However, we want to make one thing clear!

Many of the routines you’ve probably seen Bailey do are influenced by Hip Hop dance, but aren’t necessarily considered a full-on Hip Hop routine.

At STEEZY, we refer to Bailey’s choreography as “Open Style” – a style of dance that draws on many styles of dance, especially Hip Hop and other street styles like Popping and House.

That said, training in Hip Hop classes will improve your ability to execute the moves that Bailey Sok likes to do!

Hip Hop dances are based around two fundamental movements: bounces and rocks.

Bounces are executed by bending your knees and bouncing up and down to a beat.

Rocks are executed by swaying/rocking your body from side to side to beat.

Many popular dance moves that you’ve seen in viral challenges, music videos, and Bailey’s routines follow this format, even if they aren’t a classic move from Hip Hop history.

Watch for the Hip Hop influence in her choreography below:

And if you wanna learn how to dance true Hip Hop and build your foundation like Bailey’s, of course, STEEZY has a Beginner Hip Hop program for ya too!

2. Learn From Bailey Sok’s Dance Class Instructors

All dancers are shaped and molded by their mentors, so taking classes from Bailey’s mentors will get you one step closer to dancing like Bailey herself!

During her teen years, Bailey spent a lot of time training with Melvin Timtim and his team, S-Rank.

Melvin has a unique style that impacted Bailey’s way of dancing and choreographing quite a bit.

Check out this video of Bailey performing with S-Rank:

One of Melvin’s signatures is using very small movements to create hugely impactful moments.

That moment around 1:33 in the last video when the whole team is doing that funky two-step-slide move in unison is a great example.

Bailey uses those same types of minimalist movements in her own routines and freestyles, so practicing Melvin’s routines will help you get that Bailey Sok “look.

You’ll also find that Melvin Timtim loves to appear super laid back and groovy during certain sections of his choreography, and that vibe has bled into Bailey’s dance style too.

For example, in that video, did you see how Melvin and Bailey allow their shoulders to drop down and back so that they have an almost slouchy posture?

That’s a huge reason why people think Bailey Sok looks cool when she dances!

By slouching and leaning back a bit, she never looks like she’s trying too hard. ;)

A few other choreographers who have taught Bailey Sok:

Alfred Remulla – a super creative choreographer who infuses his routines with storytelling! His classes have definitely given Bailey Sok an opportunity to work on her fluidity as his routines are all about seamless transitions.

Anthony Lee – another choreographer who loves an effortlessly small movement! He milks the sh*t out of tiny movements so that it feels like he’s dancing in slow motion. You’ll notice Bailey doing the same thing when she dances too!

Brian Friedman  – an absolute icon in the dance industry, Brian mixes grace and extreme power in every single piece! When Bailey is tapping into her more feminine energy and Jazz background, you best believe she’s pulling from Brian’s teaching.

If you’re lucky enough to live in a city where these choreographers visit and teach, check out their classes and learn from them directly –– you’ll be dancing like Bailey Sok before you know it!

And if not, you can also learn from ALL of these choreographers on STEEZY Studio, right at home.

They tend to teach more advanced choreography, so it’ll be helpful to use STEEZY’s features to slow down the tempo and really practice nailing those small movements and fluid transitions like Bailey.

3. Learn From Bailey Sok’s Friends

Yes, your mentors are always gonna help you become the person you wanna be… but your friends are there by your side every day influencing who you currently are.

Which is a really philosophical way of saying…

You should take class from Bailey Sok’s homies.

Since Bailey has been dancing almost her entire life, she’s made a LOT of close friends in the dance community whose styles are constantly melding with hers. 

They take classes together, dance on teams together, and most importantly, freestyle and exchange ideas with each other!

Just watch this video from STEEZY’s series, “3 Choreographers, 1 Song” where Bailey and two of her contemporaries all choreographed to the same song, then talk about one another’s choreo choices.

They each have their strengths, but you can also see where their styles overlap!

So, pretend you’re at a freestyle sesh with Bailey and her friends by taking classes from people like Josh Price and Julian DeGuzman.

Then, like Bailey, learn how Josh adds seamless grooves and how Julian adds creativity to his isolations.

Oh, and while you’re at it, squeeze in some classes from Sienna Lalau too – another friend of Bailey’s with several classes on STEEZY!

5. Take Bailey Sok’s Dance Classes

Ok, this might seem kind of obvious, but if you want to dance like Bailey Sok…


Bailey is not just a skilled dancer. Now that she’s in her late teens, she’s also teaching other dancers herself!

If you’re lucky enough to be in LA where Bailey is based, you can catch her at studios like Millennium Dance Complex.

Her classes tend to be advanced, so bring your A-game, and if you’re worried about keeping up, be sure to make use of the first few tips in this article before heading to Bailey's in-person classes.

If you’re not in the LA area, surprise surprise, you can take Bailey Sok's dance classes on STEEZY Studio.

She has some incredible classes taught solely herself and co-taught with other young creators like Sienna Lalau and Sean Lew.

Check out a couple of the routines!

She’ll teach you exactly how to hit hard while still maintaining a sense of swag and sass, step-by-step.

5. Study Bailey Sok’s Dance Style Closely

Learning choreography is great, but if you really want to deepen your skills in order to master Bailey Sok’s dance style, you should focus on a specific set of techniques.

And to do that, you’ll wanna study exactly what sets her apart from other dancers!

In this video, you can see that she’s especially clean and precise, even next to other super talented dancers.

In addition to taking Ballet classes as I mentioned earlier, you can also do body awareness training drills to improve your muscle control and tackle this kind of choreography.

Check this one out for a place to start!

Bailey Sok is also known for being an impeccably fast dancer. She can shoot a limb out in the blink of an eye, and transition from one groove to another before you even know what’s happening.

If you want to become a speed master, it’ll be important to condition your body with agility-based exercises.

Burpees are a great example – you’ll build the muscle mass in your arms, legs, and, core (the stronger muscles will help you move with more ease), while also practicing doing a full range of motions as quickly as you can.

“Suicide runs” and quick calf raises are also great options.

6. Get Feedback From Other Bailey Stans

The last step to learning to dance like Bailey Sok?

Getting critique from other dancers!

You’ll never become an amazing dancer if you’re exclusively practicing alone. 

Even if you record yourself, you’ll still miss little things about your execution and performance that will be key to becoming your best dancer self.

So, if you have some dancer friends, especially dancer friends who love Bailey Sok like you do, ask them to watch you dance and give you pointers.

How the stars dance when no one sees them | Stars

At social events Leonardo DiCaprio rarely smiles. Benedict Cumberbatch admits in an interview that he is very shy. And Selena Gomez says she doesn't like parties. At first glance, it may seem that the stars lead a boring life. In fact, when no one sees celebrities, they like to have fun, especially dance. Sometimes these funny dances get into the lens of the paparazzi.

Leonardo DiCaprio

Photographers complain that at social events Leonardo DiCaprio behaves very reservedly and almost never smiles. Another thing is the Coachella festival. When his favorite musicians take the stage, Leo cannot stand still.

Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift constantly pleases us with energetic dances: on stage and in clips-parodies of other artists. By the way, Taylor is constantly dancing, even when she is not in front of the cameras.

Tom Hiddleston

Formerly Taylor Swift's fire dancing company was Tom Hiddleston . So, for example, it happened at the Costume Institute Ball party. The actor had no idea that this video would appear on the network. However, even on the air of the evening show, Hiddleston dances as if no one is watching him.

Posted by Carlos Souza (@carlossouza1311)

Benedict Cumberbatch

Benedict Cumberbatch admits in an interview that he is actually very modest and shy. I can't believe it, looking at how he dances in the most unpredictable places.

Ryan Gosling

In order to dance in the famous scene from La La Land, Ryan Gosling had to take lessons from a choreographer. But he was not very worried, because in childhood he was professionally engaged in dancing. A year ago, a video of 12-year-old Gosling dancing appeared on the Internet. Over 20,000 people watched the video in a day.

“Apparently, I reached the peak of my career at the very beginning,” Ryan joked about this video. Emma Stone She liked it so much that now she tries to show what she has learned everywhere.

Orlando Bloom

Orlando Bloom is one of the paparazzi's favorite targets. He sunbathes naked on the beach and loves to dance on a yacht with models. Before the summer holidays, lovers of hot details froze in anticipation. After all, the actor is free after breaking up with Katy Perry, which means it’s worth waiting for a new batch of dances.

Selena Gomez

Selena Gomez loves to post videos of her dancing with her friends.

“The girls and I are fooling around with our favorite music! I want to thank my friend Gwenya for the choreography,” Selena wrote on her Instagram.

But sometimes friends post on the network not only staged videos with the participation of a star, but also personal shots.

Cara Delevingne

Cara Delevingne is the most fashionable hooligan.
